Every year, we undergo a school research programme, and are required to
do a major research project on a topic of our choice. This year, together
with my 3 pals, I decided to take on something which I saw as more challenging
and exciting as a project. And that project was for the Thinkquest competition.
Completing the project was one of the most memorable experiences throughout
my years of doing research projects. The pressing deadlines, the hard
and tedious moments where everyone seemed lost, the thrill of findind
our way again, all contributed to the enriching and fun experience.
On the whole, I am rather satisfied with the outcome and through this
we also learnt a lot of skills. Other than the topic we researched on,
we have also learnt that time management skills are very important aspects
of our project. We have benefited greatly from this project and hope
that our website would be of a help to those who consider themselves
I learnt a lot about time management skills through this project. At
the start, I underestimated the time given and this resulted in a lot
of last-minute work. I also spent a lot of time perfecting the flash
presentation at the start. Although a lot of time was lost, the end-product
was quite nice and I am rather happy with it.
With this project, we have to find time from our busy schedules to meet
up and finish the work on time. It was one of the toughest things as
we all have different commitments and time was one of the things we
lacked a great deal of. However, this is a very memorable experience
and I would definitely want to do it again.
